9:00 AM - 7:00 PM "The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History"

The Adams Gallery at Suffolk University presents The Mirror of Race: Seeing Ourselves through History, a photography exhibit that challenges viewers to think about what they see when they look into this mirror onto an earlier time. Interactive elements suggest reflection about how one sees race – in oneself and in others.

The exhibit includes daguerreotypes, tintypes, ambrotypes and other forms of early photography as well as prints from tintypes made by an Air National Guardsman deployed to Afghanistan. Ed Drew’s modern-day tintypes are believed to be the first battle zone photographs using this method since the American Civil War. 

10:30 AM - 12:00 PM Freeing Art and History from Copyright's Bondage

Deborah Gerhardt visits Suffolk Law’s IP Program to discuss her research on the copyright publication doctrine to clarify whether art, photographs, films, and historical documents that fill our museums and libraries are in the public domain.  Neither the statutory definition nor leading treatises adequately identify when a work is published. Drawing from my empirical study of which variables matter most to courts, this article shows how precedential patterns point to the best solution.  Adoption of the proposed standard would provide much needed clarity on which pieces of our cultural heritage are in the public domain.

Visitors are welcome with RSVP to Professor Silbey (
jsilbey@suffolk.edu).

Professor Gerhardt teaches at the UNC School of law and writes about copyright, trademark and plagiarism.
